- WHO: Dallas Mavericks vs Real Madrid
- WHAT: The third Dallas game of the 2023-24 preseason
- WHERE: WiZink Center, Madrid, Spain.
- WHEN: 1:45 a.m. CST
- HOW: NBAtv or apparently Bally Sports
Kyrie Irving will miss his second straight game with a groin issue that’s causing him enough discomfort to warrant caution. All other Mavericks should be good to go, but at the time of this writing that’s not clear.
Josh Bowe wrote a more detailed preview yesterday which you should check out here. there’s also the betting guide here, if you’re a betting kind of person. Over the weekend we had a roundtable post on what player each writer is most interested in this season.
Thanks for hanging out today. We’ll see what kind of content we come up with in the post game but these day games as pains for folks with day jobs. Go Mavs.
